Happy New Year

To All Visitors,
As we start on the new year 2011, lots need to be accomplished in ensuring that we maintain an adequate forest cover in the country. Although only 2% of our country is set aside as state forests, individuals, communities and institutions have a big role in ensuring that they make their contribution to ensure another 8% is converted to tree cover in our homes, farms, ranches, schools, roadsides, etc.

The world is vulnerable due to environmental degradation that is caused by a myriad of factors. Below please watch and listen to the young girl who made a very moving plea to the world during a UN Conference on Environment. I hope this triggers you into action at your personal level to do something. We always look up to  the government to offer all the solutions, but never at what we can do as individuals. Please go out and change the world in small and personal doses. 

Happy New Year!
